ELGL is passionate about the free and open exchange of ideas where local governments can learn from one another to be most successful. When local leaders share their success stories, everybody wins. This is especially true on expensive and complex public works projects, and so we’re partnering with The Atlas Marketplace to collect and share details about the best water projects in the nation. The Atlas is an online community where public officials learn from one another as they are upgrading infrastructure systems — including water! — to be stronger, smarter, and more sustainable.
We selected 18 amazing water projects for you to learn more about on ELGL.org and The Atlas. The local government community voted and selected the above four projects for national recognition.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
